Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Approved Workshop: Integral Touch of Birth

Thursday through Sundays

May 10-13, San Diego 

May 17-20, St. Paul

(Upcoming plans for Europe in Nov. 2018, watch for it here)

We begin each day at 8:30 am and go until to 7 pm.

  • Wednesdays: Join us for a Spinning Babies® Workshop  (Additional fee. You need this pre-requisite before attending ITB)
  • Thursday – Sunday: Integral Touch of Birth Workshop. Each day will include a combination of education, training, hands-on practice, and professional coaching by founding educators Debra McLaughlin, Adrienne Caldwell, and  Marcello Windolph. A Spinning Babies Trainer will talk about how to integrate what you learn at this workshop into the Spinning Babies paradigm.

Bring practical support for physiological birth to your community.

Revolutionize your assessment and learn new leading-edge techniques for restoring balance within the pregnant body. Global and specific themes unite the modalities of the teachers in this new birth of bodywork. Learn the relevant anatomy in practical detail and understand the requirements and conditions that allow a natural development in fetal positioning. Deepen your understanding and enrich your tools and skills of your ability to manually communicate with the life within, yourself, and your client. Gain a greater depth in your work with clients and your own fundamental approach to work.

Your personal exploration of concepts originating in Fasciatherapy (Danis Bois Method) provide an introduction powerful enough to transform the presence you bring to your current work.  We have incorporated professional coaching sessions to focus on how to integrate what you learn into your own session flow. These four-days immerse you in the Spinning Babies paradigm. There is nothing like this in the bodywork world.
